We live and breathe our values. That applies to customers and employees alike. We treat people with respect, trust and care.

You’ll love working at Cogent.

Transparency, evolution and meaning underpin everything we do. Wellbeing is also a big part of our culture. In fact, you can read all about our values and what they mean day-to-day.

Our people are respected and celebrated for who they are. We all have different backgrounds, cultures, skills and perspectives, and we’ve all got a story to tell.

We want to hear yours.

The perks

As if collaborating with a bunch of smart, humble (but insanely talented) individuals wasn’t enough, you’ll be bringing ideas to life for some of Australia’s top companies and emerging startups.

To do this, every team member is given the freedom and tools to do their best work, both technically and personally. This means respecting and nurturing your wellbeing, development and happiness at every stage of your journey with us. These are just some of the ways we focus on our people.

We’re a group of never ending learners, so every year you have $3000 to spend on training, $500 on books, plus 5 days to simply learn… or read all your books.



Remote work comes with new set of challenges. We’ll send out all the kit you need (chair, monitor, keyboard, keep cup, desk plant etc) to work in comfort and provide fun ways to connect with the team, from our weekly Movie Club to Monday Coffees with Pets.

You get 4 weeks of annual leave a year, but if you need a little more time to sail around the Greek Islands or work on that side project, who are we to argue? You’re able to buy some extra time just because we get it.

For when life happens! Feeling sick? Kids not well? Need to look after a friend or family member? Home schooling in lockdown? We have an open and flexible sick/carers leave policy to cover a variety of life’s demands.

If you’d like to salary sacrifice your laptop, ipad or something else (that you’re legally allowed to), just let us know!

We’ve got Slack channels like #parenting and #mentalhealth to help each other out wherever we can, or access the fully supported Employee Assistance Program and counselling service to help you - from little hiccups to major life events.

Clock Icon


And we don’t just say it. Need to drop your kids at basketball? Want some zen time at a yoga class? We get it, encourage it and support it… and we’ll always get you home in time for dinner.

Meet (some of) our amazing people

And a lot more friendly faces you’ll meet if you join (take a look at them here).

What it’s really like to work at Cogent

It’s an obvious question, but finding objective data is generally not possible. That’s why we’ve decided to publish our most recent and historical Culture Amp Engagement survey results right here so anyone can deep dive themselves and figure out what’s it like to work at Cogent.
